The ViewSonic Pro8200 1080p HD Projector is a dream machine for the true videophile.

The Pro8200 makes beautiful, vivid pictures thanks to its Texas Instruments DLP DMD (Digital Light Processor Digital Micromirror Device) imaging panel with BrilliantColor. Unlike other technologies such as LCD that use just three primary colors to produce the image, DLP technology with BrilliantColor uses up to seven separate colors. BrilliantColor not only improves color accuracy, it brightens secondary colors as well. This combination increases the brightness of the colors by up to 50 percent over DLP projectors without BrilliantColor for accurate, true-to-life images. It makes all of its magic while drawing a maximum of 310W. In Standby mode it draws less than a single watt.

That great color technology would be wasted, however if you couldn't back it up with strong specs and the Pro8200 has them. Start with the Pixelworks PW980 10-bit video processor which enhances color and detail. Add 1080p Full HD resolution, the highest standard available, and back it up with 2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a crisp 4,000:1 contrast ratio, and you've got a powerful projector that can meet the challenge of ambient light and absolutely blow you away at theater light levels.

The Pro8200's wide connectivity includes 2 HDMI, component, composite, S-video and audio jacks. The microphone input coupled with the built-in 10W speakers is useful if you're using the Pro8200 for business or educational purposes or if you just want to serenade your audience at home.

All of those great specs however, could be ruined by a noisy cooling fan. At 31dB the Pro8200's Normal mode is quieter than many projectors' so called "Whisper mode" and in Eco mode it hushes down to a barely perceptible 27dB while extending lamp life to 6,000 hours.

All of this high quality projection power weighs less than 9 lb, operates on a 100 - 240V AC power supply and is compatible with NTSC, PAL and SECAM signals, making the Pro8200 a global citizen that's ready to travel if needed.

      This projector actually has less RBE compared to other DLP's in this price range, except for the more expensive Optoma hd33 which has a 6x color wheel. The color wheel on this PJ is 4x with a 7-segment color wheel, and I can assure readers that the RBE is less than a 6-seg 4x wheel comparing to other PJ's like a Mits hc4000 or Benq w1100/w1200/w6000. I know because I owned them and the Viewsonic is the first 4x color wheel I do not see RBE on too much.

      The reader most likely made a common mistake that is easy to do, the brightness was likely mismatched compared to his new and old PJ. The brighter projector will produce more RBE even with a better color wheel. Once the brightness goes down to his other PJ's level, the RBE should be less than the 4x 6-segment wheel.

      You will not find a brighter projector in this price range that does this well overall (the Panny ar100u is close). I am a serious projector hobbyist that has tested more than 30+ projectors and I write projector software in my spare time.

      Sure there are better projectors for much more money for some uses, but this projector holds its own and leads the pack in general in this price category.

      I purchased this projector to replace a Mitsubishi HD1000 projector after its color wheel kicked the bucket. Out of the box, I was very impressed with the brightness of the Pro8200. However, as typical with most projectors, it needed some calibrating with the brightness, contrast and color balance. It's decent for watching TV. It's GREAT for watching sports with bright lights. But it's not even average for movies. If it's a dark movie (i.e. Batman) then forget about it. It's a decent projector. However, I do wish I would have waited and saved a few extra bucks for a better one.

        Comments about ViewSonic Pro8200 1080p DLP HD Projector:

        In the design stage of my new family/theater room project I got on the phone with the experts at B&H; designed and purchased all the parts to my new entertainment system. Unfortunately (for myself) I'm not the most experienced builder, so I attempted to think of all things in advance, but, clearly did not. I originally purchased a projector that didn't have the throw distance I needed for my room. As always B&H did a stellar job at making it right and found me the exact projector I needed for my room. After swapping the original for the replacement, we get the Pro8200 delivered to the door and much to my surprise this thing is installed by my 7 month pregnant wife before I get home from work. She installed the BenQ universal mount, set the projector on the mount clip, and hung the projector all by herself. And for those of you concerned that I made my 7 month pregnant wife do this, be certain, I in no way intended for her to do that. But, for those of you who have had a nesting mama in your house you know what's up :) This projector has been awesome in our room (14x22). Color is great, image is clear, and I'm only using the out of the box pre-sets. Haven't used any custom color settings yet, simply because I haven't needed to. Menu is clear and concise, easy to follow and it works great through the HDMI switcher in the Denon Receiver I got from B&H. Only "complaints" I could come up with would be: it's a little big, wish I could have gotten it in white to match our ceiling, and I'm having a little trouble filling my 84" diagonal Elite screen (also purchased from B&H) top to bottom... currently have about an inch at the top I can't fill. All in all it's well worth the money. That is, to this point. As with most projectors the proof will be in the lamp life... here's to hoping for 4-6k hours of lamp life (fingers crossed :))

          Comments about ViewSonic Pro8200 1080p DLP HD Projector:

          This is my 3rd home theatre projector. My first (Hitachi) one only lasted 1.5 years. My second one (Mitsubishi) lasted 8 years! I would've gone with another Mitsubishi but they were in the $ and up range, I like to stay at or below $.The Viewsonic Pro8200 is bright enough to see in a room with a large window with the blinds open. Of course it looks way better when it's dark in the room. I run it in economy mode and it's fine.With a 3 year warranty I felt like I wasn't taking much of a chance with this one. The only down-sides I have seen from it are:1) You toggle back and forth between Video and S-video when selecting one of them as a source.2) Dark content gets a little 'mushy' (more contrast can fix this). I noticed this on previous projectors as well. Spend more money if it bothers you.3) I heard a little squeak from the fan for the first hour of operation. It went away after the initial use and hasn't returned.All-in-all, I'm happy with the purchase.

            Comments about ViewSonic Pro8200 1080p DLP HD Projector:

            Havent had this projector for long, but so far I like everything about it. I only use the projection feature. Audio is played through my Bose Adapt-iq Surround Sound system.. The projector delivers bright sharp colors and we truly enjoy it. I would like to see the remote with led buttons for use in the dark. The RANGE of the zoom lens is a great feature which a lot of projectors don't have. This gives the ability to fill the screen from reasonable distances in reasonable size rooms - A VERY IMPORTANT FEATURE TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A PROJECTOR. Throw, related to brightness on the screen can make or break a movie. If you're not familiar with these features, seek professional help. It WILL make a huge difference. - A fellow named Mike at B&H Home Theatre Division on the 2nd floor went above and beyond in helping me find a projector to fit my unique needs, and he was excellent. Thanks Mike. Would I buy this projector again? Yes I would.

              I was an early inovator, buying the SP7200 for >5K. I kept it going all this time (several fixes) but alas the main board gave up. I shopped primarily for DLP and a size that would fit my built-in hushbox. Ater an easy start up, had to run an HDMI cable in the wall... I could'nt believe the blacks! So far it's great, I can't even remember the SP7200.... lol

                  I went for the 5 stars because it's difficult to find fault here. Price, while higher than projectors with lesser specs, is the best price once you demand HD 1920 px.

                  I do presentations with gorgeous graphics and could not compromise on a lower res (1024) pixel projector. Image brightness is great and looks great even with a few overhead office lights left on.

                  Multiple input types are good to have, though I'm only using the HDMI out of my iPad (via Apple adaptor) All the input options do make the unit a tad larger than some but really, it's neither large nor heavy. It comes with a neat carrying case and shoulder strap, so it is portable enough. (it's all the other stuff I have to carry to a presentation that's bulky - like the screen!)

                  Unit is whisper quiet. Really.

                  Automatic Keystone correction works great - but note - only in VERTICAL Correction- there is no HORIZONTAL Keystone correction - not even manually. Was a little disappointed there.

                  Like all but the most expensive projectors, the Zoom range is limited.

                  One last "knock" - the front leveling foot? To call it CHEESY is an insult to Cheese. Totally out of place on an otherwise nicely designed and functional unit.

                      I made the mistake first buying the optima Hd20. I found the picture had sporatic noise but more importantly, does not work with any Mac Book Pro through DVI-HDI with adapter. I later googled it and read of many others who confirmed this. Lucky I was able to return it to B&H and got a much beter projector for the same price.

                      The Viewsonic looks great, works with my computer and comes with a really nice carrying case. The optima does not compare. At all!

                              The projector has great video quality, but does not allow optical vertical adjustment in HDMI mode.

                                For less than $, it is a very good full resolution HD projector. I am very happy at the moment, and no surprises yet. Got to see how the bulb holds up! The picture is bright, crisp and very vivid in colors.

                                    Using this projector in a large room that usually has some ambient light. The color and detail are great for movies and slide shows. And it gets bright enough that we can use it to project spreadsheets for daytime meetings as well. Quiet, easy to use, and came with a very beefy HDMI cable. Nice touch.

                                      I did some extensive research before I settled on this unit. My prior unit was a BENQ PE 7700 which I used in what I call a modified theater room. It' s open to my sun room where I do have darkening shades. To my surprise this unit gives me an outstanding picture in full sun light. It fits very well mounted on my 7'-6" ceiling. The top of my 80" screen is 11" below the ceiling. The auto keystone feature give me perfect coverage. I made some minor adjustments to color temp for an outstanding picture for HDTV, Sports and Movies. I've not found any not so great things about it yet. I love it. I love the price and I love the picture. I would highly recommend this unit for the average viewer.

                                          This projector has a beautiful image. The only limitation is that it has a limited zoom range and doesn't have lens shift, so you have to move it around the room to find the optimal image size and position.

                                            Comments about ViewSonic Pro8200 1080p DLP HD Projector:

                                            This is my 3rd projector and 1st 1080P. Two previous ones were Optoma DV10 and HD66. DV10 died on me after about 4 years and HD66 starting to show dead pixles less than two years.

                                            Viewsonic Pro8200 is very easy to setup with very flexible zoom function to fit your screen size. Since I have everything hooked thru my Pioneer sound system I never listen to the on board speaker and can't give any feedback on that.

                                            I set it to eco mode since it's quite bright but it always default back to eco mode off and I don't know if there's anyway to have it set permenantly.

                                            The fan noise is fairly low, lower than previous Optoma and it shuts down instantly with no delay. It finds input source very quick unlike the Optoma HD66 hunts a lot and audio always comes on few seconds before the video, and even the audio is delayed after player already started playing. Not with Viewsonic.

                                            Since I only have it for few weeks we shall see how it perform in the long run.

                                              Great gaming projector, COD was great on this thing. I also purchased 3 of these for meetings.

                                                  This projector actually has less RBE compared to other DLP's in this price range, except for the more expensive Optoma hd33 which has a 6x color wheel. The color wheel on this PJ is 4x with a 7-segment color wheel, and I can assure readers that the RBE is less than a 6-seg 4x wheel comparing to other PJ's like a Mits hc4000 or Benq w1100/w1200/w6000. I know because I owned them and the Viewsonic is the first 4x color wheel I do not see RBE on too much.

                                                  The reader most likely made a common mistake that is easy to do, the brightness was likely mismatched compared to his new and old PJ. The brighter projector will produce more RBE even with a better color wheel. Once the brightness goes down to his other PJ's level, the RBE should be less than the 4x 6-segment wheel.

                                                  You will not find a brighter projector in this price range that does this well overall (the Panny ar100u is close). I am a serious projector hobbyist that has tested more than 30+ projectors and I write projector software in my spare time.

                                                  Sure there are better projectors for much more money for some uses, but this projector holds its own and leads the pack in general in this price category.
